Industry supply giant Nisbets has partnered with the charity Hospitality Action, which offers vital support to workers within the hospitality industry facing difficulty. Utilising the dealer’s extensive reach within the hospitality sector, Nisbets and Hospitality Action aim to cooperatively raise vital funds, allowing more people to access the charity’s services.
In addition to fundraising initiatives across the year, Nisbets will use its products and platforms to drive awareness of the help available from Hospitality Action, from assisting with financial difficulties, providing support and guidance for those suffering from physical and mental health problems, to offering access to services which can aid with addiction and personal strain.
Nisbets will also be headline sponsor of Social Sunday – an annual celebration of the UK hospitality sector. Now in its sixth year, Social Sunday is the brainchild of Hospitality Action’s principal patron, chef Jason Atherton. The event, which takes place in early July, aims to raise as much money as possible for this cause. In 2020, the initiative intends to recruit more operators to showcase the dedication the industry shows to supporting its own in times of need. Funds will be raised by donating a percentage of profit from food and drink made on the day.
Klaus Goeldenbot, Nisbets Group CEO commented: “We are extremely proud to announce our partnership with Hospitality Action. Its tireless hard work and the support it gives to those facing crisis across the hospitality and foodservice industry is frankly, immeasurable. Our loyal customers have supported and helped grow the Nisbets business, and in return we’d like to offer them support in both good, and more challenging times. We’re delighted to be able to aid the charity in its efforts.”
Mark Lewis, chief executive of Hospitality Action added: “We’re delighted to welcome Nisbets onboard as a partner and we’re particularly excited to have them as our headline sponsor for Social Sunday 2020. Their huge reach, boundless enthusiasm and brand profile will help us take Social Sunday 2020 to new heights by engaging more operators than ever before to fundraise for their fellow hospitality people in need.”
